Down To The Finish Line

Well the fall/winter shows are upon me - like a wild beast. Some strange thing happened and in the last week I've ended up with 3 more shows. I'm excited about them all. I've posted the locations on my show tab so if you want to drop. 

Everything is lining up and falling into place very well. The rush prior to the first show of the season is always crazy. This Thursday I will pack everything up and it will stay in go mode till mid December.  Then a bit of a quite time and no more shows till February. 

I've been playing around with a new technique and it is a lot of fun. Here are the first two experiments. 

The weather is getting to the perfect stage for me - thou I will like  it even more when it drops around 60. Love fall so much.  The colors are the ones I love the most. 

Changes

I seem to have a new grasp of time - it floats by me and I somehow seem to miss the on ramps. Even with these waves of time slipping in and out I do manage to get some things done.

Even without her thou I have managed to get a good bit done for this show on Oct. 4th and 5th. Not my normal amount but it will do. I gave up on worrying about it and surrendered to embracing the amount I have done. 

This past Friday I had very good mail and was once again blessed with a wonderful heart felt gift. 
This was created by a wonderful group of ladies from the Music City Modern Quilt Guild  They even had a secrete facebook page going to talk about this without me knowing.  I love civil war fabrics so they created me a nice modern v…

Looking Towards The Next Day

It seems that as much as I try I am not as organized as I was "before". So when I have a good day of getting things done and not getting side tracked - it most excellent! I have a show coming up in 4 weeks and need to be at my bench as much as possible - life does get in the way thou. There are those silly house chores, then work of course - if only all you had to do was play - but then as my sister in law will say - yea I've got this silly habit of needing to eating. So you try to push your art into your daily life. 


I saw this posted on pinterest the other day and it seemed so perfect

AN ARTIST CANNOT FAIL IT IS A SUCCESS TO BE ONE Charles Horton Cooley

Well Mr. Cooley you are so correct. Today I received a letter from a show I had applied for. I'd sent in my application about 4-6 days before the deadline. It ended up they had a lot of jewelry folks apply and I didn't make it in. I was disappointed that I won't do this show, but for the first time I wasn't disa…
